Very deep ruby in colour with a youthful purple rim and lively, perfumed nose. Cherries, ripe blackberries and a touch of spice on the nose give way to a supple, dark plummy structure with a spicy, black pepper character on the finish.
A very inviting South African Pinotage and a good example of this much questioned grape variety, the `bastard son of Pinot Noir`.... Very fragrant with a a light touch of purple and black fruits on the nose with a hint of pleasant cough syrup thrown in. With it`s spicy notes and grip it`s a perfect match for that mid week Chilli con Carne!
South Africa`s signature grape, (derived by crossing Cinsault and Pinot Noir), has now created an international following. When carefully grown with limited yields, it produces an appealing red fruit aroma, a soft palate with ripe mulberry, sweet strawberry and a touch of herbs.
Shiraz has long been Coriole’s principal variety and was first planted on the estate in 1919, while Sangiovese was planted at Coriole in 1983. An alluring nose abundant with aromas of ripe cherry, freshly-turned earth, star anise and roasted almond.
